    I am a film student at Eastern Washington University and I use my Panasonic GH2 I purchased from B&H a lot. Ovbiously, when I am out in the field or on a set, I can't afford to have down time with drained batteries, so I purchased some cheaper options off of some Electronic Bidding sites. That was a big disaster. Not only were the batteries significantly lower capacity in field use, but weren't capable of communicating with meter (non-decoded). Fortunately, I haven't had damage from the batteries to my camera, there isn't any good replacement for original equipment. I am a big fan of B&H, have been so for years. Be careful when looking for a deal on these batteries, the cheapest option isn't always the best, and it seems that on other websites there are counterfeit issues from Hong Kong. Thats why I recommend buying from a trusted supplier like B&H. These batteries might not be cheap, but they are still leagues better then the aftermarket or counterfeit junk.

    Battery's as good as this battery usually is. Not a very good battery, of course, and it runs down in a few hours of shooting, so you need several, and the price is skyrocketing for some reason. This is a huge weakness of the GH2 and other Pana MFT cameras, and Panasonic needs to correct this glaring flaw in the system and give us a decent battery. But anyway, it's the real thing and shows the charge level in the GH2, so it's as good as it gets. Problem for me was, it took about 9 days to get to me, and by that time I was already halfway through the trip I'd needed it for. I got by, with minor hassles, on the ones I had. But I would think B&H can ship a little faster than that. So I'm not thrilled for more than one reason. B&H is usually quicker than this one, so maybe it was a fluke. I hope they're not shipping "9-Day Turtle" just to save a few pennies.

                    What can I say? You need a spare battery for a camera like this (any camera for that matter). I always buy a spare for a new camera type in the equipment that I use. This camera (Lumix FZ200) was no exception

                                      Used as an extra battery for GH2.

                                      It is fantastic and is the original battery and a good price from B&H.

                                      If it was higher power, that would be awesome.

                                      Got this battery to have a back up while on vacation in Italy. Using battery in a Lumix G5. One battery last about a day of heavy picture taking, 250 to 350 pictures. I typically use my camera in burst mode to have 3 exposures of each shot. There are generic brands, but they have mixed reviews. The extra battery matches the performance of the battery that came with the camera.

                                                Searched the internet looking for a spare battery for my Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 camera. I could find only a couple of web sites that carried an Original Panasonic battery, and of those few sites, B&H had the best price. Almost everything I read about the clone battery replacments was not very positive. That is why getting a genuine Panasonic battery was important to me. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

                                                  Solid Panasonic quality, great having the chip for accurate duration info but it is expensive for what it is.

                                                  I bought this because nothing is worse than being on a trip, seeing lots of wonderful picturesque sites only to discover you should have charged your camera battery last night. I always carry an extra battery and keep both the one in the camera and the spare charged up.

                                                    I use this battery in my Panasonic GH2 Camera mostly for video production. The battery lasts 2 hours or more. So far I haven't seen anything bad about it. Perhaps they could make a battery that lasts 5 hours or so. But I have two now so it's all good!

                                                      I needed a backup battery for my FZ200, which is my favorite every-day camera for family events. From past experience I know that using other than the manufacturer's battery may result in inaccurate or no information displayed or less than a full charge. Other sites offer this battery but reading reviews it turns out they are not offering original but compatibles.

                                                      B&H has the original. Worked right out of the box. No problems. And of course it arrived quickly and safely.

                                                        It's better to buy OEM batteries and sometime you have to pay a little bit more, but honestly it's worth it :)

                                                          I purchased this as an extra battery and could have gotten a facsimile; however, I have found the Panasonic batteries to be reliable and long-lasting. Perhaps my review will change when I actually use it. My initial battery that came with my camera has still not been fully discharged, so that in itself is telling me something positive about Panasonic batteries. Well worth the extra dollars!
